Copenhagen-based DJ/producer Tomas Barfod has shared another taste of his recently released Glory EP. On “Fill Me,” he joins forces with Danish songstress Fine for a gorgeous, moody piece of electronica that focuses on atmosphere rather than pure beats.
Featuring guest appearances by Kill J and Nina K (already featured on last year’s singles “Pulsing” and “Busy Baby”), the Glory EP marks Barfod’s return to forward-looking L.A. label Friends of Friends and it is available worldwide since November 13th.

Tomas Barfod is a Danish artist and producer, whose background includes about ten years as part of WhoMadeWho and four albums as Filur, an electro duo he started with his old friend Kasper Bjørke . He released his critically-acclaimed solo debut Salton Sea back in 2012 and its success paved the way for 2014’s Love me.
The song “Happy” appeared as a B-side on the Pulsing EP and is a co-write with US singer-turned-fashion-photographer Eddie Chacon (famous for his 90′s smash ‘Would I lie To You’). The track is a sophisticated mesh of multi-layered electronica that once again demonstrates Barfod’s spirit of adventurousness and virtuosity.
On the song, Chacon wrote: “In my 35 year music career [I have] seen so many of my great musician friends slip away due to aids, drugs, car accidents, suicide (…) but I decided I was gonna be happy. (…) I’ve attended many funerals in my life and I always think the same thing: Any day above ground is a good day.”

Based in Copenhagen, Tomas Barfod released his debut solo album Salton Sea back in 2012, after about ten years of musical experience as part of WhoMadeWho and four albums as Filur, an electro duo he started with his old friend Kasper Bjørke . His solo success paved the way for his sophomore album, Love Me, which features a string and brass section and musicians like Here We Go Magic’s Luke Temple and long-term collaborator Nina K on vocal duties.
While still keeping his debut’s intimate delicacy and beautiful sense of fragility, this follow-up is also more audacious. From the start Barfod was acutely aware that in order for these songs to come to life they needed to have vocals, even if piecing it all together was like finishing a puzzle. Love Me is many-textured, endlessly rewarding, an organic-sounding electronic album utilising real heart and soul.
Here is a gorgeous remix of single “Busy Baby” by Oliver Nelson.
